  1. let me add that you will need to lightly polish the Gloss-Coat (which should remove the Opti-Seal) to reduce those components in Gloss-Coat that create gloss/slickness before applying OCP+.
  2. welcome to Opti-World! Applying Opti-Coat Pro+ over Gloss-Coat would require some prep/polishing. The components that add gloss and slickness to Gloss-Coat will not allow a good bond with OCP+. A light polish and decontamination wash should suffice.
  3. Nice to have Central America represented - Optimum has a growing international audience!
  4. You can apply Opti-Coat Pro over Gloss-Coat, but need to remove the Opti-Seal first. A good decontamination wash will work - Power Clean or Paint Prep. IPA is a less reliable option. None of these cleaners will remove either Coating.
  5. OS as a drying aid is part of my regimen now (and my car has OCP+) - so easy to do with great looks!
  6. I've never heard of someone coating floor mats but I don't think there would be any issues. I'd agree with A&J/Guz that it's an expensive and somewhat short range solution. Something like Protection Plus would seem a better choice.
  7. I hesitated before approving her, but wasn't positive.
  8. That's good to know - thanks!
  9. Different installers recommend different wait times, but my standard suggestions are - All Coatings may be topped 1 hour after application In either order - OCW and OS are fine immediately Opti-Seal - layering I've seen anywhere from 1 hour to 24 hours, not sure about Instant Detailer but would think anywhere after 1 hour.
  10. So I have the answer(s) from Dr G & Yvan: Dr G: The white pads work better on some paints and specially in hot climates since they are not affected by heat as much as the orange pads. We will update the website information so that it differentiates the two better. Yvan: The white pad is a strange animal , Iron fist in a a velvet glove if you will. With Hyper Compound it cuts more then the Orange pad. On softer paints it will finish better then even our black pad. This is why the description has it as both a cutting and polishing pad. The cell structure is different then our other waffle pads.
  11. Ahhh, the many uses of Optimum products! Now we're into cleaning blacktop...
  12. Mixboser, that was my understanding, but yesterday I saw a facebook post by Yvan saying the white pad has more cut. I'll get the determination from Dr G.
  13. Welcome to the Optimum Forum. In terms of abrasive, the Optimum waffle pads go from Orange (most abrasive), White, Black, and Blue. The white is considered a cutting AND polishing pad.
  14. very nice indeed...and one of my favorite cars!
  15. nicely done and love that color!
